Candied Fruits - Oh Dear!

Candied Lemons and oranges

The Candied Oranges and Lemons looked so promising during the majority of time that they were soaking in sugar syrup, but the end result is quite a disappointment. The rinds are far too hard and the structure of the lemons has partially collapsed. I think that perhaps I didn't poach them for long enough on the first day. I've not given up all hope and have left the bulk of the fruit in the syrup to, hopefully, candy further.

I'm almost sure that it's me at fault and not the recipe, so I've shown 'the courage of my convictions' by risking another attempt. This time using pineapple.
